Unfailing love. Deeper than oceans. Reaches to me.

4. Resolved, to endeavor to love those You call me to love, with a heart like the ocean, with a heart like Yours--wellspring of true love. Lord, do expand this puddle-like heart of mine.

You can try and hold me back. Build your damn walls, pack sandbags along the edges and yell at the clouds and the rain and the sky to stop.

But I will not relent. I will reach you. Because I am the sea. And I will continue to love you no matter what.

// I Wrote This for You
Living Water, wash me.
my levies, my sandcastles, swallow.
teach me to welcome your floods,
dance in your rains, thirst in low ebbs, 
seek desert springs. teach me to be content.

Unfathomable Sea!* i am loved by you.
teach me to love by your overflow.

*Faber's not Shelley's.

  1. Good morning, Ocean!
    I like your waves and the smell of salty air.
